Tickets, which range from $75 to $250 plus fees, are available now via the festival's website.

Each year, the event salutes an artist with an influence on the Strip; The Doors, once the house band at the Whisky A Go-Go, will receive the honor this time around.

"It's a thrill to be honored by The Sunset Strip Music Festival this year," The Doors guitarist Robby Krieger stated in a press release. "Venice was our home, but The Doors lived and came of age on the Sunset Strip. It's exciting to see that the legacy we helped create is still alive and thriving today!"
